The special, hardcover edition of Araki’s Last Year’s Photographs is limited to 500 copies and comes in a case made after the original box the photos were stored in for over 40 years.

Hidden away in a box labelled “Kyonen no shashin” (Last Year’s Photographs), 38 pictures Nobuyoshi Araki has taken in 1975 spent a quiet life, to surface as a time capsule of the prolific Japanese photographer’s early work period.

The photos - mostly snapshots of people in streets and trains, in stark black and white - capture private moments in Tokyo’s public life with an unintruding, unassuming eye. A beautiful look into the recent past of one of the world’s biggest megacities, and into the early career of one of its most talented photographers.
